Wine Class with Dave Baloun

We have arranged for local wine expert, Dave Baloun of Elevage Wine Advisors, to offer his wine classes (previously held at Stark State College) at Canal Tavern. Each course will consist of three sessions and will be held on the first Wednesday of each month.

Class size is limited to 15 participants to insure a good learning opportunity (while having fun!). Classes will run from 6:30 to 7:45 to allow you to eat before or after the course if you choose to do so.

The first three-session course - priced at just $85 per person or $75 for groups of two or more - will include a more in-depth introduction to and tasting of white wines in class 1, red wines in class 2 and buying wines and pairing wines with food in class 3. Wines will be sampled in each class.

Call for your reservations as participation is limited.
